“A sprightly colourful Godardian pastiche.” The Guardian

Synopsis

Paris, 1967. Jean-Luc Godard — arguably the most renowned filmmaker of his generation —  is shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky, 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love. They even get married. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process leading to drastic changes in the filmmaker’s behaviour and perception of the world. From star filmmaker to Maoist artist, revolutionary, off-the-wall, destructive, brilliant, misunderstood and incomprehensible, he will pursue his choices and his beliefs to a breaking point.

Academy-Award winning director Michel Hazanavicius delivers an imaginary and tender reinterpretation of an obsessive incorrigible. Louis Garrel brilliantly goes from an imitation of the filmmaker to a subtle incarnation. In the use of humour, the film remains faithful to Jean-Luc Godard and his cinema, in which he constantly and playfully undermined conventions and expectations. Redoubtable is a creative and witty unbridled pastiche of Godard, charming, funny and moving. After the success of the internationally acclaimed The Artist (2011), Hazanavicius delivers another tribute to classic cinema.
